Add Art to Your Roofline with a Large Copper Weathervane
At Valley Forge Cupolas, our weathervanes run the gamut of sizes from small garden weathervanes measuring 9”-23” long to large copper weathervanes up to 56” long. Larger weathervanes are the perfect finishing touch for barns, commercial buildings, and larger homes and cupolas. Here is a closer look at some of our large copper weathervanes so you can begin to explore the possibilities!
Add Art to Your Roofline with a Large Copper Weathervane
This exquisite Mermaid & Dolphin combo is the largest of all our weathervanes, measuring nearly 5’ in length! This dynamic duo makes a splash on any roofline. While dolphins have been universally loved throughout history, merfolk have had a more complicated mythology. Often traditional folklore depicted mermaids as heralds of bad luck or misfortune. However, other cultures - specifically those that influenced “The Little Mermaid” - gave us the friendly, beautiful mermaids we know and love today. If you want to add some playfulness to your roofline, this is the weathervane for you!
If you prefer peaceful marshes to crashing waves, our Great Blue Heron will feel right at home on your roof or cupola. Herons are majestic birds who soar effortlessly over marshes and ponds with their six-foot wingspan. This silent sentinel will keep vigilant watch over your domain.
If you enjoy more traditional waterfowl, this trio of geese are ready to fly over your roof in a graceful arc. While Canada Geese are the most common and plentiful variety of geese seen throughout the United States, there are 6 additional native species, including Brant and Snow Geese. Show your love for these incredible birds with a stunning large copper weathervane!
This majestic eagle is ready to soar over your roofline, the official symbol of our nation since June 20, 1782. Patriotic weathervanes were extremely popular in America during the early 1800s, and continue to be some of the most popular designs today.
This incredible, chunky porker is ready to trot above a barn or large farmhouse! If you are a fan of unusual weathervanes or Charlotte’s Web, this weathervane will be the perfect addition - and conversation piece - to your building.
This elegant racehorse is a throwback to weathervanes of the mid-19th century. At that time, horse racing was the most popular sport in America and racehorses were the sports stars of their day. One of the most famous racehorses at the time, Black Hawk, became the subject of a popular Currier & Ives print. That print then became the model for some of the most popular horse weathervanes, and that spirit lives on today in this stunning design.
